The Dynamics of Dream-Vision Revelation in the Aramaic Dead Sea Scrolls
With a foreword by Florentino García Martínez
1. Edition 2015
Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Journal of Ancient Judaism. Supplements -
Andrew B. Perrin contributes to the ongoing debate over whether the Aramaic texts among the Dead Sea Scrolls are a cohesive corpus or accidental anthology. Paramount among the literary topoi that hint at an inherent unity is the pervasive usage of the dream-vision in a constellation of at least twenty writings.
The author demonstrates that the literary convention of the dream-vision was employed for scriptural exegesis, to endorse particular understandings of the origins and functions of the priesthood, and as an ex eventu historiographical mechanism for revealing aspects or all of world history.
